Every since I can recall, I have had an eagerness to know how things work. My curiosity knows no limits and I have responded with a striving passion feeding it every chance I have gotten. They say a human brain has a limitless capacity, so why not test its limits?
It is interesting to observe how humans like to do different things depending on their background. Factors like, society, religion, customs, language, economic situation, or simply who have you been surrounded with determine how a life develops. But what if we would be able to discriminate subjective factors?
I have been born and raised in what we have come know as the West. Early in life I was introduced to alternative cultures expanding my scope and conforming my personality. Far from being free of stereotypes, I will admit I am a realist and I consider this world of us a tough place to be living. Nothing but a façade underneath which, the same medieval world we know from 2000 years ago lies down, well-hidden for the most part of our society.
My passions and field of knowledge have been driven through this creed. New horizons are to be found, regardless of me being the one deciphering them, or others leading the way.
Much of our modern world is inhabited by machines. We rely on them for almost anything: they improve our life quality, make us more efficient and productive.
The way I see it, understanding complex mechanisms gives you a competitive advantage because of the objectivity that underlies in its nature.
My passion for mechanics started early in life. Every since then I have been involved in it, fixing anything I have had within reach.
Professionally, I have been involved in the automotive, heavy machinery, and engineering industries, although I truly think this skill-set can be exported to many life facets.
Life is all about excitement. Discovering new places and having that sense of uncertainty telling you where to go next; is to me one of the biggest pleasures in life.
The lessons mother nature can give us are unimaginable. While many things have been researched and documented there is still plenty of it yet to be discovered.
By going outdoors you become one more regardless of what you have come to be in our society as your instincts as a "Homo Sapiens" emerge to the surface.
Any sport related to adventure and survival is a major field of study to me. You never know when it will come handy and I always apply the "better safe than sorry" policy.
Technology in this field is advancing at an exponential pace. Those of us who coexisted with earlier versions of Windows without graphic interfaces and floppy disks find difficult to believe that an average smartphone can outperform what once was a powerful machine.
Notwithstanding nostalgia sentiments, change has to be embraced and fast. Whoever does not is doomed to failure.
I graduated in 2010 as an IT & Telecommunications technician. I cannot count how many times have I had to recycle myself already nor how much I like it.
If I was to specialise within this field I would stick to The Internet of Things and AI, being those the ones that captivate me the most.
I will not say I am an adrenaline junkie because I do not like the way it sounds, but I definitely love it.
My mechanical background has worked to my advantage enabling me to prepare and maintain the vehicles and motorbikes I use in the track.
As an amateur, I have profound respect for people who devote their entire lives to Motorsport, displaying two top qualities I value most: sacrifice and persistence.
My adrenaline medication kit includes a drift spec a 1989 BMW E30 with a M30B35 engine taken from a 535i E34 series, a 1984 Toyota Corolla AE86 with minor modifications as a time attack vehicle, and a 2001 Suzuki GSX750 for racetrack use only.
I am currently working on other projects I will be disclosing as they see the light.
Having served twice as a volunteer in Kenya with different organisations, schools and institutions, has proved to be a lifetime investment.
I find inequality and education to be, among many other components in the social unfairness mix, the basic reasons why many people find themselves permanently in a deadlock position. This enrages me a lot.
Volunteering abroad will soon show you that regardless of how many people you help, there will always be more. It is a utopia we sadly won't be seeing anytime soon getting any better.
Who is it to blame? I blame governments and corporations with specific interests overlapping what should be regarded as humanitarian priorities.
I want to think each of us can contribute in many ways. Volunteering will be mostly beneficial to your personal development, and will certainly show you the good side each of us has to offer.
In 2016 I signed for a double Bachelor's Degree in International Business and International Relations.
I found the major to be particularly interesting because of its wide array of content and professional possibilities.
Notwithstanding I was starting back to square one being this a branch of studies with little correlation with my professional field, I decided to go ahead with it anyways.
I do not regret that decision and I truly think I will be able to establish a connection sooner or later, merging both disciplines if not fully, partially.
University teaches you many things you take for granted some times, but for me making a come back to the desk has proved to be one of the best things that could have ever happened to me.
